The Pennsylvania Department of Health reports between 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11 and 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14, that there were 14,001 new positive cases of COVID-19.

The statewide cumulative case count also includes 15,414 reinfection cases from the 66 counties outside of Philadelphia County, including older cases which occurred throughout the course of the pandemic.

The statewide cumulative case count is now 1,648,285. 

According to the DOH, the 15,414 reinfection cases are being included, because the national case definition was revised in 2021 and is being implemented in Pennsylvania this month. Under the new national definition, an individual who tests positive more than once at least 90 days apart would be counted more than once. Before the national definition update, Pennsylvania and Philadelphia were reporting positive individuals only once. Reinfection cases for Philadelphia County were reported on Wednesday, Nov. 10.

The department is also reporting between 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12 and 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14, there were 132 new deaths identified by the Pennsylvania death registry, for a total of 32,411 deaths statewide.

There are 2,694 people hospitalized with COVID-19. Of that number, 614 people are in the intensive care unit with COVID-19. More data is available here.

The trend in the 14-day moving average number of hospitalized patients continues to decrease. The full 14-day moving average since the start of the pandemic can be found here.

Statewide percent positivity for the week of Nov. 5 – Nov. 11 stood at 10.3%.
